People walkin' down the street
get a feeling from the people you meet
People walkin' down the street
get a feeling from the people you meet

Rent is due, crib is a pit
phone's cut off, TV's on the fritz
neighbors are complaining, 'cause we play so late at night
credit's over at the bar and the Union's back on strike

Chorus
Mother Street gotta help me get back up on my feet
Mother Street gotta find me some fine people to meet

seasons change, the sun is shining in the sky
the work I find can't pay my bills
and that's the reason why
I'm going back on the outside
it's better off that way
she's got so much just for living
and there ain't so much to pay

Double Chorus
